Honey Garlic Chicken for #WeekdaySupper

8403137561_3bf910954c_oWhen I make a simple but really good recipe for my family I immediately think of #WeekdaySupper and how I just NEED to share it with everyone! This one reminded me of that “take-out” feeling, a dish you’d order while your out but you’ll spare yourself that “full” Oh my god I ate way too much feeling! There is just something about Honey and Garlic that really just go together, have you every realized that? With a dish like this or a marinade? They just belong together like an old married couple! The other best part about this recipe is it’s from one of my favorite weight watcher sites! I’ve been making Gina’s recipes for years, they are tasty but guiltless! Give it a try and serve it over your favorite salad the next day!

    Yum! That looks wonderful! What is the plastic wrap in there? Just wondering :) I love slow cooker meals, especially the tender, juicy meat you can get! I love the idea of honey garlic combo too! Pinning this recipe for sure :)
